A group of us visited for Sunday lunch and the experience was a bit mixed. The service was painfully slow getting drinks but the staff were very friendly. We all had Sunday lunch but only 1 small bowl of veg was provided between 7 people. The staff however brought out more when we asked. I would try elsewhere if I... More

Just a one night stop over en-route West. Coming from a part of London where we are spoiled for excellent restaurants, we only expected an OK evening meal but what a surprise we had! I think the chef's name was Matt and he was new to the inn. But can this lad cook! Everything put on our table was beautifully... More

The cheese platter... More

We stayed here last evening and thoroughly enjoyed. A very warm welcome from Matthew on our arrival and continued throughout our stay. The room very comfortable and breakfast very nice. We will definitely recommend to our friends and we will come back. Excellent stay.

The menu was quite basic but typical fare for a local pub- lasagna, curry, pie etc and was in line with what we expected, based on previous reviews. The starters were OK, the soup was salty and although the pate was nice,... More
